R.I.P. Michael “Eyedea” Larsen

*Tragic week for Hip-Hop, as one of its brightest up-and-coming underground aritsts was found dead earlier today. Michael "Eyedea" Larson was definitelty not a stranger in the freestyling scene, and is perhaps most notable for freestyling at Scribble Jam 1999.

For those whom are not very familiar, I strongly suggest you check out some of his work including with DJ Abilities as well as Aesop Rock and Sage Francis.

No known cause for his death, but Word of his death came from his mother, Kathy Averill, when she made a Facebook post earlier today after finding him dead. “It is with great pain and sadness that I tell you my son Mikey (Eyedea) has passed away.”
